. the amount of regulatory rules finalized in his first term lag behind that of president george w. bush's first term with nearly 12% fewer rules. president obama's rahman comes with a heavy price tag. 186 of his roles finalize his first term were deemed economically significant. that means that each rules annual economic impact is more than $100 million. the cost which blows the '81 economically significant roles in of the water. with more on this, editorial board member of the wall street journal. thank you for being with this. the count the shows the presence of oz first term had fewer regulations. it's askew. there are time coming up that just aren't quite final. >> that's exactly right. those to make a loss to the amount of regulatory burden, you're talking about thousands or perhaps even tens of thousands of new pages of regulations. those are the big when it comes to new regulations, let's not forget, the climate change agenda, the apa. this is the fact that will be defined not by legislative achievements by president obama because he can't get much done, but rather through regula
extent this wasn't a criminal enterprise. this was a program started ironically by george bush who has been motivated to get more into the hands of people who may not be able to afford them. remember, when all of this cleared out, there were a lot of reviews, lots of executives. two things went on, the focus wasn't remedied, salvaging us from economic collapse. the second was to look and see if there was the smoking gun. it wasn't throughout the industry, the entire mortgage debacle was not all bad. there was a genuine purpose of good behind it. one of the last reasons you get the feeling this is going to be a big mistake is because in pandering to the populist who wants to see a head carried through the town square, we are fighting last fight. there were about 2000 referrals to the justice department of bank fraud. since '95 there have been about seven or eight per year. part of the reason is because they re-tasked people. there is a limited number of people working for these units of the government and starting about '95 they refocused on health fraud. now you can actually see we are

to be simple. look at how george w. bush became president. it was the overpowering incentive in the republican party was in win. in the 1990s they lost. the government shutdown in 1995. they lost when clinton won again. they lost on impeachment. they say, we have to find a way to win an election. you have george w. bush and compassionate conservatism. it's a totally different game. they said compassionate conservative was big government conservatism and spoiled the good name of conservatism and gave us barack obama. you have two sort of competing things, two sort of complementary things going on in the conservative movement. one is standard. beat the other party's guy. beat barack obama. the other one is there's no such thing in a post-bush world of being too pure in the republican party. what that exactly means from a policy and agenda standpoint, i don't know, nobody's articulated yet. there's this constant battle now, constant reinforcement for people who seek out the most pure position, most pure label and you can gain stature, prominence and make a lot of money on the conservative side by

president george w. bush got a memo entitled bin laden determined to strike in the u.s. a month later nearly 3,000 people died in the worst terrorist attack in u.s. history. americans want their frf to be vigila vigilant. they don't want right wingers trying to score cheap political points while he's trying to keep us safe. joining me now is former democratic congressman patrick murphy. the first iraq war vet to serve in congress. and karen finney, host of "disrupt" here on msnbc. thank you both for joining me. >> thanks, rev. >> thanks, rev. >> congressman, one republican lawmaker said closing the embassies was done like a bunch of cowards. what's your reaction to that? >> well, you know, i just think it's disgraceful, to be honest with you. these are guys that are the biggest chicken hawks in the world. all they want to do is criticize, criticize, criticize. it's a knee jerk reaction. whatever president obama says, they do the opposite. now, they should stop this crap when we're talking about the national security, the safety of our diplomats. being a diplomat overseas is not an easy job.
an impeached president just like the republicans. then george w. bush. they say people weren't nice to george bush so we're going to be extra mean to barack obama. and they're constantly framing their policies. now, in the irs case, there has been a really pernicious use of the irs. would be to go after political enemies. but the only person who's done that, you've seen democratic leaning groups or liberal leaning groups complaining they were audited during the bush administration including the naacp. that is closer to the nixonian model than the irs. >> we saw congressional hearings, now we find out the irs was also looking for successors to acorn. even using those cute little acorns there looking for progressive groups. anyone that looks political. what happened to all of this noise we were hearing on the hill? >> remember it was elijah cummings that pointed out some time ago if it's being nixonian it's issa. issa was limiting the amount of information coming out to paint a specific picture that he wanted painted. remember there was that back and forth between cummings and issa where cummin

presidential campaign be like? brad bliekl blakely smiling on e right. you worked for president george w. bush. brad, how much does he have to win by in november to potentially send a national message? what do you think? >> if you look at the polls as you suggested, eric, he will win handily because he's delivered. don't forget. new jersey is a blue state. he's a republican governor in a democratic state. he has to face a democratically-controlled senate. look at what he's been able to do showing bi-partisanship, balanced budget, creating jobs, taking on the teachers union. his leadership before, during, and after superstorm sandy, so his leadership is his greatest strength. that's why you see his poll numbers so good even beyond his state, so i think he'll win handily unless something unforeseen happens in november. that sets him up to be certainly the frontrunner as we start talking even now about 20 60s d the presentation rate. >> eric: he's got a feud going on with rand paul and some in the republican party he's alienated. >> the republican party isn't homogeneous. we have a lot of differ

massively expands spending, and quite frankly george bush expand spending under him with a republican congress. this is not republican or democrat. this is constitutional and originalism. the problem is under republican administrations in congress, under democrat administrations in congress, we have this massive explosion of the federal government. if we don't constitutionally limit that and how much of our private property they can take through taxation, we're doomed. because they are not going to limit it. ? you have an amendment to limit the federal bureaucracy. as you said, they're in every aspect of our life. >>> the federal bureaucracy is the fourth branch of government. they issues 3,000 laws and rules a year. and the people have no say in it. so that is a delegation congress gave to them and i say it ought to be delegated back envelop do you believe an amendment to promote free enterprise, protect private property, grant the states the authority to directly amen the constitution. >> right. two-thirds of the states to directly amen the constitution. the constitution has been re
is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i
